Hi , finally i got my simpad on eBay ( of course rolleyes.gif ) , now just come home ...while I try to understand something.
I have read with much interest this forum and have visited various site.
The propagation of this splendid toy above in Germany unfortunately penalizes Italian like me , with poor knowledge of deutsche language sad.gif so , sorry for maybe usual stupid question .
My project consists in equipping simpad of a PCMCIA card with two USB
One to install a usbpen as memory flash with standalone soft + data (some memory limitations? ), in the other one usb bluetooth dongle . It can work with windows ce 4.1?
many thanks at all

Hi,

this project sounds funny.

But first: SIMpad had only one PCMCIA 16-bit slot and no CARDBUS 32-bit slot.

-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_Card

So this should not be possible, (all USB-2.0 "PCMCIA" Cards are 32-bit Cardbus for my knowledge), sorry.

Regards,

mrdata

Of course You're aware, what you'll have to write your own driver for win.ce and/or familiar/opie linux distro. But if you'll make a pcimcia 16-bit usb host with full usb stack what would be a great thing. I keep one's finger crossed. Good luck!

Btw. have you choose some devices? PCMCIA or usb chip?

Hi,
maybe a ratoc usb 1.1 Host adaptor cf card will help you. With an cf to pcmcia card connector you can use it on 16 bit pcmcia bus.

best regards
